A Sympathy Poem to the Children Whose Mum Died

In moments like these, when shadows fall,
And grief’s heavy cloud casts its pall,
I stand by your side, my heart reaching out,
To console your souls, dispelling doubt.

A woman of grace, a pastor’s dear wife,
A beacon of love, a light in this life,
She touched every heart with kindness so pure,
Her spirit endures, of that, you can be sure.

Her laughter was like music, her smile like the sun,
In her presence, a battle was fought and won,
With faith as her anchor, she weathered life’s storms,
A testament to grace, in all its forms.

In this time of sorrow, I offer my warm embrace,
To a pastor whose faith has now been tested with grace.

To console your soul, as you bid your dear wife adieu.

Oh, shepherd of souls, be steadfast and strong,
For your little ones and those who’ve known you so long.
Amidst the tears that fall, and the pain you endure,
Know that death’s not the end, but a bridge to the future.

Your dear wife, who’s left this earthly abode,
Shall eternally reside with our heavenly God.
Keep her memory alive, with awe and fondness,
For love transcends death, till eternity endless.

For upon your spirit, burdens God will bear,
God is your peace in the midst of storm,
A gentle embrace, to keep your heart warm.

Remember, His light will guide you, come what may,
For God is your hope in doubt’s treacherous sea,
Leading you to shores of immense tranquility.
